    Added the finishing touches to the the tail lights before mounting them. I added epoxy to the shaved corners to fill the voids and then added a bead of silicone around the perimeter to help guarantee a water tight seal. There is nothing more embarrassing then seeing tail lights with water...

    Not at all Neil.:rolleyes: In all my years of doing diagnostics I usually use the connector ends. Very rarely did I need to know the color of the wire. The factory shop manual shows the pin assignments for all the connectors. Our $2000000 Locomotives did not use wire colors. If it was good...

    Here are some pictures of the rough harness in place. Any tips or advice before I bond in the clip mounts?

    Yes. It’s cost prohibitive to try and buy spools of TXL wire in different colours.

    Started work on the last wiring harness for the car. I didn't use any factory supplied wiring. This will be the front hood lighting harness. A quick connect industrial "AMP" connector is being used. The picture shows the rough in length. I'll be so happy to have the wiring completely done shortly.

    Dreaded P0606 Code

    Was it a hard code that set off the fault light (and is still there) or a soft code that went away after further starts?

    The Dulaney adapters come with the required 4 bolts. They are ARP bolts M10. They may no longer be available. I know he was taking his last order recently. The left picture shows that the adapter is hub centric to the front upright. My pen is pointing to the precise fit between the two. The...

    The sensor Dan used is adjustable for height. Yours doesn't look adjustable. Getting it to fit with the shield will be more difficult. You could always buy the VDO sensor from Pacific Customs as well as the ring. Dan could give you the part number for the Freight Liner sensor he used as well...

    Your results will improve further Del if you can find someone with HPTuners to adjust the pulse count in the ECM. Looking at the picture I'd say that's not a reliable way of getting a pulse but I guess your results speak for them self. You could always try the two piece reluctor wheel shown on...

    I used the term "rivet nut" because that's what they are sold as on McMaster Carr. I prefer aluminum when used with fiberglass due to them being softer. It's easier to tell when they are pulled up snugly. The use of epoxy on the backside is the trick to "future proof" their use.

    What type of metal for rear engine mounts?

    That looks like 1/4" plate Howard. You mentioned you built it out of 1/8" in post #6.?

    All the rivet nuts are now encased in epoxy to aid their strength.

    The lower support is completely different on the race cars. Yes...ideally the bar is stronger if used in a straight position. I chose not re-fabricate it. The upper support is less than ideal due to the rod end angle. I would have assumed the upper rod end Gr8 bolt would snap/shear before the...

    I really like this gun for applying two part epoxy (smaller jobs). It's fairly cheap and you just buy a bunch of the mixing tips. Gun.......................................74695A71 Mixing tips.........................74695A968

    I finally got around to fastening the engine window. I used more screws than most to help eliminate the wavy look. The screws are threaded into 10/32"rivet nuts. The bottom side of each rivet nut will be later covered in a bead of epoxy to help with the strength once I flip the hood over. For...

    Here is a photo of the OEM C6 Corvette jumper harness I'm using to connect the SKF 30 spline hub to the Racelogic wiring. It is part #15248662. The connector at the far end is PT 1757 or Standard Motors S-823. The harness is a robust piece.
